Khoya/Khova - 1 cup

Atta/wheat flour - 1/4 cup

Powdered Suger - 1 cup(adjust according to sweetness)

Dry fruits - 1/4 cup

Ghee - 1 teaspoon

Maida - 2 cups

Milk - 1 teaspoon

Oil  - for deep frying

Cardamom powder - 2 teaspoons


  • Take a wide opened bowl and add maida, milk, enough water to knead dough for poori, keep it a side for 20 - 30 minutes.

  • Heat a kadai, roast wheat flour and keep it a side, in the same pan roast khova for few minutes and add to wheat flour stuff, then add powdered sugar, cardamom powder  and mix it well.

  • Heat small kadai and add 1 teapoon of ghee, add dryfruits and saute for few seconds and add this dry fruits to khova stuff  and mix well.

  • Now stuffing is ready, let it to cool, make evenly  roundshaped circular balls with khova stuff, make that balls into shape of  modak like whole garlic.

  • Now take the maida dough, divide the dough into evenly sized balls, roll the into poori's.

  • Keep modak shaped stuffing in the center of the poori, Bring together all the edges of poori together and close the top. This is quite a task especially if you have not made something similar to this before.

  • Remove the extra portion of the dough from the top. You will get perfect shape with modak mould, but with little effort we can get the shape manually also.

  • Heat oil in a deep frying pan, divide modaks into 3 batches and deep fry them till light brown and evenly fried all sides in a medium flame.
